Description

The Yamaha YMP-204M Mellophone features a rich vibrant sound with excellent tonal projection. Yamaha R&D conducted extensive field tests with leading bands, and has redesigned the bracing for a more open, free-blowing feel. The overall balance has also been changed making it more comfortable to hold and play, while the slide configuration has been reworked improving both intonation and tone qualities.

Well Balanced

All Yamaha marching instruments as well-balanced, so they are easy to hold maneuver while marching.

Hand-Fitted Valves and Slides

Hand-fitted ensures an absolutely perfect fit and seal between the valve pistons and casing or slide parts. Such a fit helps to achieve smooth air flow and smooth action, and improves the response and intonation of thee instrument.

Laser-Fused Plasma-Welded Bells

A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually seamless bell, which results in continuous, even vibrations.

Pressure-Formed Tubing

The perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a smoother air flow, thus making possible an excellent scale and reduced resistance.

Heavy Bracing

All Yamaha marching instruments have heavy bracing throughout, so they are more durable at vulnerable points and can withstand the rigors of use in a marching band.

1st Valve Thumbhook

All marching brass (except for the YEP-201M) feature a 1st valve thumbhook for intonation adjustments.
